WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A man from Wilmington was arrested in Pender County Friday for alleged insurance fraud.
According to the North Carolina Department of Insurance, Sinclair Auvant Parker, 45, was charged with one count of insurance fraud and two counts each of obtaining property by false pretense and attempting to obtain property by false pretense.
The NCDOI said Parker submitted four insurance claims with fraudulent invoices for property damage he claimed was the result of a vehicle accident in Buncombe County in June 2012.
Parker's insurance company paid him nearly $7,000 for two of the claims, and he's accused of trying to get an additional $12,000 through two other fraudulent claims.
